Upcycle Used Paper Into a Papercraft Airplane Toy

Step 3: Find Your Paper

Picture of Find Your Paper
I had some water damaged books in my room (left by another teacher) that were getting moldy, some had lost their jackets.  I hate throwing out books, even old books, so I thought a while and decided to use them in art projects.  The book I found had pictures of airplanes in it and it was about play, so I figured making a paper airplane toy out of it was fitting.

I started by using the nose cone pattern and cutting it out.  The large dashes are where the pattern should lay on a fold of the paper, so you have to identical pieces hooked together.
